vowing to protect america's allies. earlier today north korean leader kim jong-un made what is believed to be his first public appearance in two weeks. here he is, it includes visiting the mausoleum where his grandfather, kim il-sung and his father kim jong-il lie in state. jim clancy has the latest from seoul, south korea. jim. >> reporter: brooke, john, yes, there were major celebrations going on this day in north korea to mark the 101st birthday of kim il-sung, the founding father of north korea. kim jong-un emerged from two weeks of absence. he appeared to be flanked by members of his military as he visited the glass encased coffins of his grandfather and his father to pay what the north koreans said was the humblest of respects. meantime, in south korea, people got up, had breakfast and went to work and opened up the newspaper. it wasn't kim jong-un on the cover, no, it was psy and the release of his new single. the media here came under a little criticism because of the way that they have described these lavish celebrations in north korea at a time when so many people there are hungry. the north koreans lashed out at them saying that it was not at all the kind of thing that they should be saying on a day lik

say that young 29-year-old kim jong-un is further trying to consolidate his power among the central military commission, among the political elite. you remember when his father, kim jong-il tried to consolidate his power, he blew a south korean plane out of the sky killing a good number of members of the south korean cabinet. this is typical when it comes to a leader in north korea. remember the kim family trying to consolidate power and therefore should come as no surprise. but layer on top of that, candy, the idea you have new leaders throughout the region. you have president park from south korea. took a very hardline against north korea. president park just ran on a more conciliatory policy. so now she's having to turn things around. is she prepared to deal with this and her new cabinet? you've got xi jinping, the new leader of china, who is somewhat untested in his particular realm being new to power and head of the central military commission. you've got a new leader shinzo abe in japan, although he's around for a second time although he's more nationalist mode and he is going to want to show japan isn't willing to back down. >> so new people everywhere as well as a new

completely silent. right up there, kim jong-il and his son, kim jong-un. going to come out and watch. the goal of all of this was purely political. introduction of the heir apparent to the kim family dynasty, kim jong-un. out and about in the capital, no one seemed to know much about kim jong-un. do you know what his age is? what he is like? it seemed the young general was everywhere we went from stadiums to the public squares, but never uttered a word. we should point out when kim jong-il's father named him as heir apparent in 1980 it wasn't until 12 years later that he first spoke in public. so for those anxious to hear from the next leader of the kingdom, sit tight, it could be a while. you should know north korea has long turned its lights off at night because of a shortage of electricity. if you looked at the satellite view you can see the lights are elsewhere. compare this trip to the last one i was on. there is actually more lights out at night than before. maybe something is changing. also remember, three days ago there were almost no pictures of kim jong-un, heir apparent. b
